Hello! I’m Emily and I work at Wattpad as a Product Manager!
Our hackathon group is working on a special idea, I would love your feedback and thoughts. We’re curious: If you could have private reading clubs or groups attached to stories on Wattpad, what would you love to see, what would you hate to see? This would kind of like be private group chat around stories.
Boundaries for this hypothetical scenario: We would definitely have some moderators who are approved by the writer to help moderate these private groups but we want to emphasize that this is something that is a safe space for people to share their thoughts with other people. We’d also let people in your private reading group know if people were online reading so you can read together.
What would make this exciting?? What are your biggest worries?
How would you like this to compliment inline comments? What other features would you like to see?
